For Shawn, The recent announcement that Dave Epperly will no longer serve as director of the Minnesota DNR’s Forestry division marks the first ripple in the political pond seen from DNR commissioner Tom Landwehr. For many in the timber industry, the change came as a surprise, and is another example of the ongoing struggle between different Minnesota DNR disciplines. In this edition of Points North, Shawn explains why he thinks the DNR needs to do a better job explaining its forest management policies to loggers, hunters and the public at large.
